contact with the fbi was a result of his friendship with doug walker at berkeley high i believe. in the context of the fbi tapping the phone, can you give something of a time line as to when the fbi first made contact with aoki with regard to walker and how that worked itself out chronologically? as you probably know, in 1961 doug was called before the house un-american activities committee during the whole washing down the stairs operation. >> according to the former fbi agent bernie threadgill they have not -- this wiretap picked up -- they were fellow students at berkeley in the late 50s. the fbi approached richard aoki and asked if he would become an fbi informant and the documents released from richard aoki's informant files are consistent with them. richard aoki a city aiding with certain people in the 50s and he was approached by 1961 and these documents which the fbi tried to cover up and released only as a result of a court order turned out to have threadgill's initials. in d8bgill's initials. in the essential ways. and starting in 1961 richard aoki became active in var

happened between 1850 and 1861, quick tour. bleeding kansas, kansas-nebraska bill, steven a. doug los, the political compromise of the bill, and it's brilliant. if you want to know why steven a. douglas was known for his political brilliance, read about him in 1850. that's when he became the great steven a. douglas. now, he was forever in slow and rapid after wards because he in effect by promoting the kansas-nebraska act years later, and essentially ofuated what had been achieved in the compromise of 1850. that, too, helped radicalize northerners. the blood in kansas that came out of the kansas-nebraska act helped radicalize northerners. john brown, harper's raid and other abolitionist activity radicalized northerners, and so it would certainly be wrong to suggest the compromise all by itself somehow was all that mattered in that decade. these other things were partly offshoots of it, but, again, war would have come in 1850 without it. hi. >> i was wondering if it's tough to deal with hypotheticals, but if you could comment on compromise would have been different or would have happen
